A volunteer writes: I could not have chosen a better name…Marshmellow. Indeed, our Marshmellow is white and sweet as the famous candy… She is one pretty gal, rather thin and a hungry caterpillar. Give her food, shelter, care and love and Marshmellow will bloom into a most gorgeous Lilly flower. Her eyes are golden, always in alert for treats and noises coming from the nearby street. She walks fast, with a limp as she was born with a deformed left foot. She sits beautifully on command and relieves herself in the yard. I can not say of course that she is fully house trained. Marshmellow loves to be out and she will let you know all about it when she is in her kennel. She is leashed without effort and salutes on the way all her wards mates. She accepts easily a scarf and a coat and is not intimidated by my camera nor being tethered to the wall for pictures.She is a little anxious but understands quickly that I am a friend. Soon enough, she is on my lap, washing my face with her kisses. Marshmellow is a delicious little female, so happy to be in company, wagging her tail non stop and so eager to belong. She needs some TLC and to make her understand that life as a pet can be beautiful in loving hands. Come and meet Marshmallow at the Manhattan Care Center and make her yours.
Another volunteer writes: Miss Marshmellow made my night! This 3-year old girl is a beautiful, affectionate, and energetic soul. She walks well on a leash, despite her deformed foot–in fact, I don’t think that foot or anything could really bring Marshmellow down. She’s a happy, bouncy gal who loves to love on her human friends and also loves to get treats in return. Marshmellow showed me how well she could sit for a treat, and she even would stay sitting while I retrieved the next treat. She was wonderfully excited for those treats, and I was the recipient of many a kiss by this cuddly girl as her way of saying thank you (or of getting more treats? Either way, I’m not complaining!) Come down and meet Marshmellow today!
